This Sunday (7th July) was a reminder of last year’s summer of sport. Not only did Murray bring Wimbledon home, but almost 70 Cubs from eight packs in South East battled for the first place shield at Saffron Lane stadium.

There was no chance of the day being rained off this year, with temperatures of almost 30 degrees and not a cloud in sight.  The standards were high throughout the heats, with every Cub giving it 110% and fighting for a place in the final. Between the heats and the finals, spirits were as high as the temperature, with Harry (61st) describing the morning so far as “Brilliant, awesome and wonderful!” and Cameron (58th) said it was “way better than school sports day” and every pack still was very hopeful for the finals.
